Measuring Pothole, Cracking and Rut Depth at traffic speeds
How the proposed new Road Condition Monitoring standard could adopt this.


– As a new data standard for Local Road Condition Monitoring is developed, we will provide insight to our contribution to the Network Study where we applied the Dynamic Response Intelligent Monitoring system.

– We also discuss how this could be included in Scotland via the Performance Audit Group where Waterman is working in partnership with PWC and Turner Townsend along with the operating companies.

– Further insights are provided on the use of RCM technology in Japan, East Asia, and Africa by Watermans parent company, CTI Engineering International.
